LA-1978 trillium 4500 - $3000

1978 trillium

4500 fiberglass camper trailer
1978 trillium 4500 camper trailer. Been stored inside almost all of its life. Has seen very light use. It has a bathroom in it with normal septic hookup but the toilet has never been used as far as i know. because there is a bathroom there is no bunks in the trailer. the only bed is the dining room table that folds flat so the trailer only sleeps two people. the refrigerator works on propane or electricity as does the heater. no a/c but plenty of room on the roof to mount one. brand new tires. i looked at quite a few of these when i bought it and this was by far the nicest one i saw. look at the rims! ive towed it with both a subaru and a jetta and it worked great. the one flaw is a spot of fiberglass patch where a branch hit it and poked a hole about the size of a quarter. i'll post a pic sometime tomorrow of that. its at my workplace so i can show it anytime 9-5. clean title and permanent registration in hand. come and get it.
$3000
feel free to ask any questions.

Nice! A front bath unit would be a good starting point to add a real shower/bath in the front, like Scamp does.
The price is right.

This looks like a good buy...

Interesting oddity sidenote:

I think it's the first Trillium I've ever seen with an "awning" over both the front and rear windows!

For a trailer that has been stored indoors all it's life, it has a lot of sagging Ensolite. Also it doesn't have shelves above the dinette.

I spoke with the owner of the trailer today. Have a gentleman from a mobile RV repair service going to check it out in the morning for me to see if it's up to snuff. If so, it does seem like a good buy. Since i'm springing for the check-up, the owner was nice enough to take the ad down until I purchase/decline. I'll keep you guys posted.

I have seen this before, and I think I like it. Window rock guards are hard to come by, but I would like to do this to my trailers as well.

The one in LA Isn't the one we saw some time back, it appears to be in much better condition.

In case that's per my comment to Ben:

I was referring to the $2300.00 quick-flip that emerged here for resale at $5,000.00 four days after we first saw it.

Ben got there a little late...let's hope he gets there in time on this one!
